Do you ever wonder why your husband seems to compliment you more on the days you feel absolutely hideous? What is it about you that makes him love you so much? Is it your looks? Your passions? Your sense of humor? Perhaps those things have something to do with his undying love for you.

But, what he truly loves is the little quirks that make you who you are.

Here are 21 things your husband secretly adores about you:

Your smile

Your smile is one of the most beautiful things he has ever seen, especially when he is the cause for your pearly grin.

The way you playfully shove him when he's being ridiculous

He loves to annoy you and surprise you because of your genuine reactions. Your soft shove to his shoulder is one of his favorite sensations.

When you stick out your tongue while concentrating

Or perhaps the way you twirl your hair around your finger in anticipation or the way you write your name all over the notepad when you're on the phone. He adores the little quirks you have.

Your laugh (including the obnoxious snort)

It's true. Your snort is one of the most beautiful sounds he has ever beheld. He loves your genuine and contagious laughter, in fact, it's his favorite sound in the world.

When you are close to him

He loves when you make time to cuddle and watch a movie on the couch with him. Being near you is where he always wants to be.

Your kindness

The way you treat others is the reason why he fell for you in the first place. He knew he picked a keeper when he realized your aptitude for genuine kindness.

The way your mind works

He adores the way you talk excitedly with your hands about your passions and dreams. He is always ready to hear what you have to say on any matter, because your mind absolutely captivates him.

The way you notice the small things

He loves the way you appreciate even the smallest act of kindness in life. You see each day as a gift, and it inspires him to do the same.

When you are dolled up

He loves when you curl your hair and rock lipstick with your favorite new dress.

And when you aren't

While he does love when you are dressed at your best, nothing compares to your sweat pants and messy bun days. He loves the moments when you are simply you.

Your passion for life

One of the reasons he fell for you was for your ability to simply live. You enjoy the world and all the wonderful things it offers you, and your positivity rubs off on him. He loves the way you embrace your life to the fullest.

When you put others before yourself

He admires your selflessness and he doesn't know how he got so lucky to have such a generous wife.

Your lack of pettiness

He loves the way you don't fuss over the small things, especially about your looks. Little things don't bother you, and if they do, you quickly move on. When you have true confidence in yourself, that is when he finds you most attractive.

Your courage to take risks

Whether you two are climbing a mountain or jumping into a freezing pond, he loves the way you dive head first into the unknown.

Your cheesy humor

Those corny puns and silly things you say really make his life worth living. Your sense of humor brightens his whole day.

The way you look at him

Whether it's after a peck on the lips, or if he catches you staring from the other side of the table, he loves the way you look at him with a look of true love.

The way you take care of yourself

He loves that you are active and that you take care of your body. He also loves that you push him to be healthy as well, even if he acts otherwise.

Your spirit

He loves your sense of spirituality and your ability to have such mindful conversations and beliefs.

Your eyes

He sees his entire world in your eyes and he never gets tired of looking at them.

Your small, intimate gestures

The way you kiss him goodbye and the way you grab his hand when you're shopping together mean the world to him.

Your ability to be yourself

Finally, he just loves you. He loves that you are honest and genuine, and that you love yourself. He loves you for the bright, beautiful woman you are and he loves how you accept him for who he is as well.
